Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
Grainne Mulvey's record includes Akanos, a bold yet frantic orchestral work that shows off a wide range of compositional technique. My favorite is 'The Seafarer', a song for soprano and tape that includes ocean sounds as well. Some of the sonorities remind me vaguely of Arvo Pärt. Some strong points make this record worth hearing.

AKANOS features six works by Irish composer Grainne Mulvey. Ms. Mulvey's music explores the juxtaposition of polar opposites, pitting the real against the synthetic in finely crafted and thought provoking works. Features performances by soprano Elizabeth Hillard, pianist Matthew Schellhorn, cellist Annette Cleary, flutist Joe O'Farrell, and the Lithuanian National Symphony.
